JEFFREY LEWIS
8:30 p.m., ACAC. $5

Becoming famous in the weird, reclusive world of anti-folk is no small feat. But it was bound to happen for someone as fiercely unusual and outright clever as Jeffrey Lewis, the singer/songwriter, essayist, storyteller and comic book writer. With 20 music releases under his name, he's set the bar for all other quirky guys with acoustic guitars to follow in his wake. He turns his dweeby, colorful pen towards his hometown of New York City ("I Saw a Hippie Girl on 8th Ave."), drugs ("No LSD Tonight") and his musical influences ("Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror") to mixed results, but ultimately does the niche genre of naive-folk better than nearly anyone else. He plays alongside Ezra Lbs., the local indie-garage act, and (clap!) Kidz Pop!, the children's band that's definitely for adults.
